Clearly there has been a breach of style by one or more persons concerning those who are descendants of the Noble House of Said. The following statements is clear and based on the laws of 1926 Italian Nobility.
1. Only those closely related can style "dei Principe de Sayd" as per rules of Italian law. This means those who are at least grand children of the Principe de Sayd can style such an effect, no distant relative can use such style.
2. No one can style the title of Prince without authorisation from at least the Head of the Imperial House of Osmani, apart from the Head of the noble House of Said.
3. The head of the House of Said is acknowledged by the papacy over the centuries as heirs of Djem Osmani, but we do not claim as heirs of the Ottoman Empire since the direct line died out in the 17th century. We are merely carrying forward a tradition of heritage as most titled families have done and pose no threat or pretension or claiming to be "Pretenders of the Imperial House of Osmani".
4. Junior descendants can not style or make claims other then being a descendant. No parties can promote or evaluate such person without expressed authorisation from Imperial House of Osmani.
Note: The Imperial House of Osmani are the descendants and claimants of the Ottoman Empire (Turkey).
